island mary

August 9, 2010

I just noticed that the titles of my first two posts are “island” and “Mary.” Lovely opportunity for a small tribute to one of my favorite poets.

    Shakespeare’s moma was Mary Arden and the Tempest a play set
    on an island, has many gorgeous variants of “island” but I don’t
    guess you mean the Bard. No man is an island and if you look there
    I believe Mary is absent. So I hive up. Who is this favorite og yrd?

    I GIVE not hive up. But hive is kinda cool;

    Hive up=n.transitive. To link a couple of hives together,
    A collection of hives.

    Hey you. I love this drawing, the old woman bending over so worshipful and bent –so spent and still there. Such a great variation on the annunciation. Great poem too. Didn’t know it.
